A post by Troy over at gave me the idea for this post. Troy's post is about a man in Alabama who was fired for wearing a 10 Commandments lapel pin. And Troy asks
"what if he was Muslim and wore a pin that had a Koran on it? Or a female with a Muslim head scarf? What then? What if it was not religious, what if it was a pro-abortion pin? I bet the ACLU would be there and there would be "outrage" over this deal. What if it was a "black power" pin? The NAACP would be there and Jesse Jackas....Jackson would be on the next flight out."

I can sort of answer that question. Here in the great state of Oklahoma, a 12-year-old Muslim girl has been allowed to wear her head scarf to school by the Justice Department. Now, admittedly, I don't know much about Islam, but isn't the head scarf, or hijab, as symbol of their religion? What happened to "The Separation Of Church And State" the ACLU and Left-Wingers love to throw around? Does it only apply to Christians? That's the way it seems. All my long time readers know I'm not a religious person, but even I can see the persecution of Christians going on in the world today. They're being told that everything thing they believe in is wrong, evil and hateful. This little girl is allowed to wear her head scarf to a Government financed school, but if a kid were to wear a Cross to school, in full view of other kids, the ACLU would slap that school district with a massive lawsuit. You can't have it both ways. The law isn't John Kerry. You can't grant one religion special favors while turning down others. Either let this child wear her head scarf while letting other children represent their religion, or turn them all down. This could also be said for allowing Menorahs during Chanukkah but not allowing Crosses during Christmas. The ACLU, along with parents, are so paranoid about their children seeing symbols of religion and how they may corrupt their young minds, but how about letting the children decide if it's hurting them. I'll guarantee that they could care less. Speaking as someone who doesn't follow a religion, I don't have a problem with their symbols. I'm not offended in the least by a Government building displaying a Cross, Menorah, Star of David or anything else they want. Just don't favor one over the other.
